The peer-reviewed journal appears monthly in print, online, and via iPad with additional online Web First articles appearing online ahead of print. Published since 1981, The Washington Post, has called Health Affairs the bible of health policy.

Government policymakers and health industry decision makers from the U.S. and around the globe also write for and read the journal.
Health Affairs is available via subscription and all articles ever published by the journal are available online at healthaffairs.org. All abstracts, tables of contents and many articles are free to access online, and all content is free online to readers from the lowest income nations. Health Affairs Blog offers an inclusive and interactive dimension to the journal’s timely commentary and analysis of health policy dialog. Health Policy Briefs provide a short history of a current health policy issue, an exploration of opposing views, an explanation of what is at stake and what the research says.
